Creating a New Geospatial Analysis


You perform a Geospatial Analysis analysis on a single exposure view or contract, which is called the analysis target.

AIR recommends that you review your exposure data by opening the exposure view before you configure and run an analysis; the Exposure Summary Dashboard provides a visual overview of your exposure data.

Process overview

To perform a Geospatial Analysis:

1.      Create a project or open an existing project.

2.      In the Project Data pane, select the exposure view for which you want to configure and run an analysis.

3.      In the New Analysis area of the navigation pane, click Geospatial. The New Geospatial Analysis pane displays the name of the analysis target and indicates how much of the exposure data has not been geocoded. If the percent of non-geocoded data is high, you may want to fix the data before running the analysis.

4.      Specify the values you want to analyze: Location Values and/or Exposed Limits.

5.      Specify how to accumulate the values, by: Zones, Rings, Custom Boundaries, AIR Event Footprints, Custom Event Footprints, or Hazard Boundaries. You can select only one method of accumulation.

6.      Select the spatial outputs you want to include: Static Hazard, Custom Hazard, Detailed Loss Results, and Additional Attributes.

7.      Optionally, select Settings & Save By, which, by default, accumulates analysis results by contract, layers, and locations; currently, you cannot change this setting. You can turn Disaggregation on or off and apply location terms for residential contracts (using the AIR Default Behavior or by applying deductibles before limits).

8.      Optionally, apply reinsurance programs.

9.      Optionally, select the Enable Dynamic Results check box if you want to be able to analyze your data—try "what if" scenarios"—in many different ways. When you select a spatial output, the application automatically selects this option and you cannot clear it.

10.   Click Analysis Management to configure analysis-specific functions.

11.   In the Analysis Name field, leave the default name, which includes the exposure view name and the type of analysis, or enter a unique, alphanumeric identifier.

  Entering some combination of the exposure view name along with the analysis type enables you to quickly find result sets in the Activity Monitor.

12.   Click Run. The application adds the project to the Activity Monitor queue for processing when the required system resources are available.

13.   View the analysis results.
